Buckeye NFL rookies receiver their jersey numbers with new teams

·3 min read

By now you know that there were several former Ohio State players that were either drafted or selected as undrafted free agents with NFL teams. Some have already started their rookie camps at the next level, while some are getting ready to get things going.

Part of getting things off the ground involves being assigned a jersey number, something that can be pretty monumental and follow a guy all the way through their career.

Now that we’re this far removed from all the hubbub of the draft, we now have all of the former OSU players’ numbers that we can share with you. Here’s a listing of every former Ohio State player and their number at OSU vs. their number with their new NFL teams.

Keep in mind these numbers could still change, but it’s a starting point for what they all hope will be a solid career on Sundays.
